Historic Sites of Manitoba: Veteran’s Memorial Plaque (Riverton, Municipality of Bifrost-Riverton)

A monument at Riverton, erected by the United Veterans of Manitoba on 8 November 2015, commemorates the First Nation, Metis, and Inuit veterans, and is in remembrance of all veterans who served, fought, and died in defense of Canada and North America. Along the pathway is a concrete bench inscribed with the names of the five Riverton military personnel who died in the First World War and Second World War.
